It has more than one line lock, in case you REALLY need to hold the wheels.

It also has 2" valves on the intake and exhaust, but later he says they are 2.19 and 1.88. I guess he averaged them.

And CragErs.

Lastly, do these guys EVER think of breaking out the F-ing vacuum before snapping a shot?

I like the rare two-tach option. Let's you see rpm of piston power stroke independently of exhaust stroke :yes:

Well the seller is selling it, so he's not going to go through that work, just like the wiper motor and heater fan.

I think the other one is to let you know when each piston stops at TDC.:D

Wow... so the car being on Pinks is supposed to be worth more? :confused:

And double wow... the description is out of this world.

Stupid question: what's with the decking of the pistons? Never heard of that. What's the purpose of it? To reduce compression? :confused:

It would be too reduce compression, where decking the block will increase compression. I doubt if the pistons were decked, more likely the owner doesn't know what is up.

I decked a piston for a friend's big block about 25 years back. I did it with a hand held grinder and mine came out looking way better than the one he had done by a machine shop(who didn't charge him for it either). He had to do two pistons to match the ones he had that were bad. Motor ran great. :D

The stupidity alone in this add should be good for a 4K reduction in price. :yes:
I didn't see the sticker but I'm sure this was built at the M.I.C.-K.E.Y. mouse academy of racing,:eek: And I more than agree about the shop vac statement!

Cool, thanks. I learned something new. I assume this only works with flat top pistons.

And yeah, I agree that the owner doesn't seem to know much. The whole ad reads that way. And with the choice of pistons out there, wouldn't it be more expensive to bring them to a machine shop instead of getting the right ones anyway?

My buddies was a pop up higher compression piston. I matched it to his others by taking a little off of the dome.
